And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
I watched the latest episode of Bones on Friday evening and the last line of that verse was quoted. The whole episode really made you think about many things but mostly of these two questions:
Are there things you regret?
Will you be remembered when you’re gone?
Isn’t that something to really think of? The classic: Why are we here? What is our purpose? What are we meant to do? hrm.
It was quite a sad episode though. A little heartbreaking but beautifully written and directed. February seems so far away.
